All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services knows that although it may be a bit warmer today by the end of the week it’s possible that we will have more freezing temperatures and snow. However at All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services we do not close when it gets cold out. We still provide our septic services to our customers even in winter weather. Today we have septic services scheduled, including septic repairs and septic upgrades, for customers in Lakeville, Acushnet and Rehoboth MA. We are also adding a riser to the outlet of a septic tank for a customer in Rochester MA. Adding risers, covers and filters to your septic system will improve its effectiveness. When your septic system is more accessible, it is also much safer and more attractive. These goals can be achieved through the use of strong, durable risers and system covers. Once installed, homeowners are able to provide easy access to the system for future septic repairs, septic upgrades or cleaning services, eliminating the need to dig and excavate the system each time it needs to be pumped. Another septic upgrade we can provide to customers is the addition of a effluent filter. Engineers, scientists and educators in the septic industry suggest that property owners install an effluent filter in the outlet tee of their septic tank to extend the life of their system. Coupled with a regular maintenance program, such as All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services’ Preventative Maintenance Program, and professional pumping, your septic system could actually last indefinitely. Due to the high cost associated with replacing a septic system, these seemingly small upgrades to your system will pay off in a big way. If you would be interested in septic system upgrades or if you need a septic repair or other septic services or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact our Norton office on 508 763 4431 or visit
All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that on days when the temperature is very unlikely to creep above freezing staying indoors with your feet up is always an attractive option. However if you have a septic system that requires maintenance that is not always a wise choice unless you have a company that will do that preventative maintenance for you. We provide regular septic system services for our customers so they can relax and no longer worry about septic system maintenance. Septic services are an ideal way for property owners to be totally confident that their septic system maintenance is being done without have to concern themselves about it. We maintain, check and monitor the septic system and notify our customer if we find anything that may be a problem in the future which can prevent small septic problems becoming large and expensive septic failures.

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that the word ‘cesspool’ does not conjure up pleasing images and if you are considering buying a property that word can certainly put a damper on enthusiasm you might have for it. However with the proper maintenance a cesspool is not the problem that you may fear. A cesspool is a pit which acts as both a settling chamber for solids and a leaching system for liquids. They are classed under on-site sewage disposal (“septic”) systems (which) are governed by Title 5 of the State Environmental Code 310 CMR 15.000. And
“Title 5 requires that systems be inspected under certain circumstances. In this manner, system owners can be educated about the importance of properly maintaining their systems, and those systems that are an environmental or public health threat can be identified and upgraded.”
More infomation can be found on the Mass Gov website.
Therefore as long as you maintain your cesspool so it does not become a environmental or public concern your cesspool can continue to process a property’s waste and wont need to be upgraded. However a cesspool does generally require more ongoing maintenance than a conventional septic system. All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services do provide property owners with cesspool services to ensure that their cesspool gets the necessary maintenance and continues to operate correctly and efficiently. Today we have cesspool services scheduled in Dudley, Sturbridge, Oxford, Spencer, East Brookfield and Brimfield MA. If you have a cesspool and have questions or if you need a cesspool service please do contact our Norton Office on 508 763 4431 or visit All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services
All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that proper maintenance is key to ensure that your septic system operates correctly, efficiently and continues to do so. Without regular maintenance your septic system will fail and will need to be replaced much sooner than if you had regular preventative maintenance. Getting your tanks cleaned on a regular basis will help to improve the efficiency of your septic system and keep it running smoothly. Having your septic tank pumped, which must be done every 3-5 years, does not always mean that your septic system is also ‘cleaned’. All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services takes pride in the work that we do, utilizing specialized miniature equipment to locate specific areas of your system, such as a sewer cam that is used to investigate the inside of your sewer lines, and jetting equipment to clean the pipes within the leach field. Today we are providing septic cleaning to customers in Chelmsford, Westford, Ayer, Carlisle, North Reading and Acton MA. If you would be interested in Septic Cleaning, Septic Pumping or have any septic questions please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services for an evaluation and to set up quick and easy pumping and cleaning arrangements.
All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have many property owners on our preventative maintenance program to maintain the septic system for their property. Our program provides peace of mind to our customers who can be confident that their septic system is being maintained. We service septic systems for residential and commercial properties and also for properties that are not occupied full time. These are not, however, always just ‘summer homes’ but also those that are used for occasional vacations year round, or during the winter ski season. When you have a ‘vacation’ home with a septic system, because it is not on town sewer, it can be wise to choose to have a preventative maintenance program for your septic so you don’t need to worry about its upkeep. We will monitor, service and maintain your septic system so you can be confident that your system is working correctly and any problems will be caught early. If a property is not occupied full time you do not want the worry of a septic issue occurring when you are not home to fix it quickly. A small septic problem, if left can become and large and expensive septic repair. Today we are servicing septic systems for customers on our preventative maintenance program in Westford, Ayer, Carlisle, Chelmsford and Stow MA, some of these homes not being occupied all year round. If you would be interested in having your septic system on our preventative maintenance program so you do not need to concern yourself about your septic system maintenance please do contact us to make an appointment or answer any questions you have on 508 763 4431 or visit All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services
All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that to ensure that your septic system continues to work correctly and to increase the lifespan of your septic system it is advisable to maintain your septic system. Septic pumping is essential maintenance that will remove sludge and scum from your septic tank which does not drain like effluent into your leach field system and get purified as it ‘percolates’ into your soil. Today we have septic pumping scheduled for customers in Holliston, Southborough, Grafton, Upton, Millis and Uxbridge MA. It is recommended that you have your septic tank pumped every 3 -5 years but this does depend on various factors including the size of your septic tank and the property’s water usage. Also if you have a garbage disposal you will need to have your tank pumped annually. If you are unsure if your tank needs pumping please do call our office where we will be happy to discuss your options and if you need to schedule septic pumping or if you have any septic questions please do contact our Norton, MA office on 508-763-4431 or visit All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services for an evaluation and to set up quick and easy pumping arrangements.

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that after getting through the holiday season many people are getting back to ‘normal’ and hoping their finances will do the same. However although some maintenance can be put off until your wallet has recovered from the holiday season one thing that really should not be ignored is septic maintenance, more specifically septic pumping. Septic pumping is not a ‘nice to do’ item but something that has to be done if you have a septic system servicing your property. It does not usually have to be done that often, generally every 3-5 years depending on factors including the size of your system and the number of people using it. However it should be done regularly and if you leave too much time between septic pump outs you will start to see unpleasant and costly repercussions.
We have septic pumping scheduled today for customers in Hanson, West Bridgewater, Sharon, Taunton, Norton and Raynham MA.

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that car owners will often choose to have regular services on their cars to keep their vehicle working at optimum efficiency and to stay ahead of any repair work that might come up rather than be surprised at an inconvenient time and find that their car doesn’t work.

Again you want your system to be working efficiently and it is definitely preferable to have your system maintained which helps prevent repairs from being necessary.
